ContextHear Us, Shepherd of Israel
1Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel, you that lead Joseph like a flock; you that dwell between the cherubim, shine forth. 2Before Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh stir up your strength, and come and save us. 3Turn us again, O God, and cause your face to shine; and we shall be saved. 4O LORD God of hosts, how long will you be angry against the prayer of your people? 5You feed them with the bread of tears; and give them tears to drink in great measure. 6You make us a strife to our neighbors: and our enemies laugh among themselves. 7Turn us again, O God of hosts, and cause your face to shine; and we shall be saved. 8You have brought a vine out of Egypt: you have cast out the heathen, and planted it. 9You prepared room before it, and did cause it to take deep root, and it filled the land. 10The hills were covered with the shadow of it, and the boughs thereof were like the goodly cedars. 11She sent out her boughs to the sea, and her branches to the river. 12Why have you then broken down her hedges, so that all they which pass by the way do pluck her? 13The boar out of the wood does waste it, and the wild beast of the field does devour it. 14Return, we beseech you, O God of hosts: look down from heaven, and behold, and visit this vine; 15And the vineyard which your right hand has planted, and the branch that you made strong for yourself. 16It is burned with fire, it is cut down: they perish at the rebuke of your countenance. 17Let your hand be on the man of your right hand, on the son of man whom you made strong for yourself. 18So will not we go back from you: quicken us, and we will call on your name. 19Turn us again, O LORD God of hosts, cause your face to shine; and we shall be saved.
